Why I love OCU.

One of the many reasons:

I was sick yesterday and had to go home early, where I tossed and turned, had fever, chills, and body aches along with a headache and a hacking cough.

I got up this morning and needed to come to work because Candace (The admin. asst) was out with her little one, Calleigh, who was feeling badly too. I didn't look, feel, or sound good. As the students came by, they all noticed that I was sick the day before and asked me if I was feeling better and if there was anything they could do.

One of my RAs brought in some cough medicine. Several came by to visit to cheer me up. Another student brought me two cans of chicken noodle soup.


I think it's God's grace and the feeling of family we have at this sweet little place. We are brothers and sisters, and we take care of each other. We belong in the same family, and so we help each other.

Being 'babied' by my sweet friends today was so nice and made me feel so loved!!

Thank you Jesus.

I sure hope you get to feeling better soon. But I'm glad you had some good friends taking care of you.

This information is great to know! My daughter, Haleigh, will be going to OCU this fall. It sounds like she will be part of an extended family. Thanks for sharing.
